Pediatric Exams & Prevention Cleanings
A regular dental check-up consists of both a pediatric exam and cleaning. Your child’s dentist will examine their smile and search for any signs of dental concerns such as cavities or infection. A prevention cleaning will remove plaque and tartar buildup helping to prevent dental decay.
Developing Good Habits
No matter your child’s dental needs, consistent check-ups are important! Part of building proper dental habits is scheduling dental check-ups every six months. By bringing your child to their dentist twice a year, dental concerns can be addressed right away, preventing the need for costly treatment or severe dental issues. At-home dental care including consistent brushing and flossing is also important in preventing dental problems.
Silver Diamine Fluoride
Fluoride treatments are available during regular office visits and help to strengthen your child’s smile. This topical fluoride is applied directly to the teeth and helps build enamel and prevent cavities.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
If your child has dental fears or has trouble sitting still in the dental chair, nitrous oxide sedation can help. This type of dental sedation is safe for patients of all ages and can be used during a regular check-up or lengthy visit. Ask your child’s dentist about nitrous oxide at their next dental visit!
Once your child’s permanent molars have grown, dental sealants are recommended to preserve their adult teeth. Sealants are applied to the back molars to provide a safeguard for the deep crevices and hard-to-reach areas of the mouth. Sealants are a clear plastic coating that provide protection from decay. Once applied, sealants can last for several years!
